Barbara Nicholls monumental watercolour works emerge by manipulating the behaviour of pigment in ever-increasing quantities of water.


 

“Nicholls has followed the idiosyncrasies in the behaviour of her materials and has orchestrated them into resonant shapes that, while never declaring themselves in any specific identity, nonetheless touch collective memories of the experience of natural spaces, of the landscape. In that way, she formulates a new reality”.
